SmartLipo is a technique that originated in Europe and has since been used in South America, Europe, and Asia and is now available at Carlson Laser Aesthetics in Grand Rapids, Michigan
SmartLipo works using a laser that dissolves fat while also tightening the surrounding skin. The treatment is non-invasive and does not require general anesthesia; it is performed on site at the office. Ideal candidates for this treatment are patients who have not achieved their desired weight loss through diet and exercise. Areas treated with SmartLipo include the abdomen, waist, neck, chest, hips, and upper arms.
Dr. Scott Carlson said, "My team and I are dedicated to helping our patients achieve the best possible version of themselves, enhancing their natural beauty and boosting their confidence level."
SmartLipo offers a fast recovery time, with very minimal bruising that will disappear in days. Several days of rest are recommended but many patients are able to return to work immediately following the procedure. Results are instantaneous, with further improvement in the months after the procedure as the skin adjusts to the new contouring. There are no side effects from anesthesia and no sutures, and patients report experiencing tighter, younger-looking skin.
